I was out riding today and had just reached my turn around point when I heard a pssst! My rear tire just went flat Now keep in mind I am new to cycling and never actually had a flat. I have about 200 miles on my bike and these are the original tubes. Just before this ride I added a bag under the seat and put in a patch kit with a co2 inflator, I mean I just bought it and added it today! So there I am on the W&OD bike trail about 7 miles from my house. I turn the bike over and begin taking the wheel off when as luck would have it another cyclist by the name of Kerry stops and offers his help. I gladly accept and begin fumbling around with the tire trying to get it off. He quickly takes over and gets it off(it was really tight). I then pull out my patch kit and we determine the leak is a hole next to the stem. I am working on the patch thing and he pulls out another tube and begins installing it! I was in disbelief I could not believe he would be so generous. I was pretty much screwed and he really helped me out of a jam. Then he would not take any thing for the help! Let me tell you I was shocked and in disbelief. Kerry you are the man Thank you! He says just stop and help the next guy you see. You better believe I will. Now off to the bike shop to buy some tubes/levers/co2/small pump and maybe a jersey so I can carry it all.
